Brown/rihanna Duet Confirmed By Producer
CHRIS BROWN's producer pal POLOW DA DON has confirmed the R&B star recorded a new duet with girlfriend RIHANNA, just days after he was charged with assaulting her.
A spokesperson for Don told MTV News the couple completed the track earlier this week (begs09Mar09), confirming reports that suggested the troubled pair had reconciled by making music together.
Brown, who was arraigned on 5 March (09), faces two felony charges of assault and making criminal threats after a fight with Rihanna at a pre-Grammy party in Los Angeles on 8 February (09). The incident reportedly left Rihanna in need of medical treatment.
The pair reunited just two weeks later after rap mogul Sean 'Diddy' Combs gave the pair the keys to his Miami, Florida home, so they could work out their differences.
A source tells Us Weekly magazine the song was written by Brown for Rihanna before the fight, adding, "It wasn't initially slated for Chris to be on the song.
"The funny thing is, the song expresses the emotions that both Chris and Rihanna are feeling at this moment - facing challenges and overcoming the ups and downs of a relationship."
The unnamed tune will be the stars' second official collaboration together - Rihanna appeared on Brown's 2008 track Electric Guitar, while Brown leaked an unofficial remix of his girlfriend's smash hit Umbrella in 2007.
